I did call dlink support. They made me go thru the usual hoops.
walked thru the setup, which I already had. checked the firmware
In the end i was asked to upgrade to a newer firmware and call them if
had a problem. Don;t think this one is up their alley.
I think dlink support is good at solving setup problems, but
not good at identifying a defective device. Their tendency is to blame
it on something else, like call comcast or reboot your laptop.
